Halloumi… what a cheese! After a discussion the other day I have decided that along with mozzarella and taleggio, halloumi is firmly in my top three cheeses. As a lover of a wide range of cheeses, choosing a top three was not an easy task, but I feel quite content with my final choices. For now anyway…
A few weeks ago I was invited along to an evening dedicated to potatoes. But not just any kind of potatoes. No, this was a celebration of Idahoan potatoes. Recently launched in the UK, Idahoan have been providing the people of America with a range of convenient instant potato products for around 60 years now, and this evening was all about proving just how good this product is.
I’m sure many of you are quite unsure about this recipe already. The word Marmite provokes very differing reactions amongst us all. I, quite clearly, sit on the positive side of the fence when it comes to this controversial condiment. In fact, I’d go as far to say that the word Marmite actually fills me with joy. If you don’t like Marmite, then maybe this one’s not for you. Or maybe it is?
I find myself let down time and time again by macaroni cheese when I eat it in restaurants. Wait, that sounds snobby, let me explain. I really REALLY love cheese, and I want my macaroni cheese to be, well, cheesy. Is that so much to ask? Well apparently so, because more often than not I find myself, with a heart full of hope, tucking into a rather un-cheesy pasta dish, and feeling disappointed with the results.
It scares me how quickly time passes. I vividly remember being sat at my laptop around about a year ago writing up my blog post for my Roasted Pumpkin Pasta recipe. The reason I remember this particular post so well, other than it being one of my favourite recipes, is because I remember speaking about my undying love for autumn. Unlike most others who hate this transition from the long, warm summer evenings into rainy, cold autumn nights… I love it!
